Jody Madden, CCO and CPO at The Foundry said, “I’m really excited to be stepping into this new role as I continue my rewarding journey with The Foundry.

Now as CPO, I’m truly excited to help our customers address their technical and business challenges by continuing to push the boundaries of visual effects and design software.”
 
Phil Parsonage, Director of Engineering at The Foundry said, “I joined The Foundry to deliver cutting edge research, tools and technology to help our users solve problems.  To have the opportunity to do this at a larger scale in the new role is hugely exciting.
